OMFG just finished season 3 of Fringe. And I could have SWORN I downloaded ep 4.01 but must have forgotten! GAAAAH. How did you people all wait 4 months?? What's with this show and crazy evil cliffhangers? Thank god I was binge watching - there have been some nasty ones... (end of Jacksonville, anyone? I looked it up after and couldn't believe there was a 2 month hiatus between that ep and 'Peter'! I could barely wait the few seconds for the next episode to start on my player. ^^ That was the Sunday before last, aka the day I watched 9 eps of s2 in a row because I just HAD to know what was going to happen, specifically re: Peter. Fastforward 1.5 weeks later and I'm done season 3... Anyway, I feel for people who were watching those eps as it aired; that must have been nasty. Ditto the end of season 2.)
...Why is 4.01 downloading at less than 300kb/s? WTF INTERNET. ;_; I'm going to have to wait until tomorrow night, aren't I...
Also, the s3 finale was the first ep of Fringe to make me cry. Yay! AND, I finally got to see the scene that I saw filming in downtown Vancouver months ago (very end of 3.21 and very start of 3.22). To think, I was just down the alley from Joshua Jackson, and couldn't fully appreciate it... plus it was really dark so even if I'd know the show at the time I probably couldn't have seen him. But still!
(on a more depressing note, I am deeply saddened and worried that NBC has pulled Community from its midseason schedule... what does 'removed for a short time' even mean? I hope it at least gets to finish off s3. I so desperately want it to get renewed because it's become easily one of my favourite shows, but it's not looking good.)
And I need to post more. Yeesh. Didn't I promise fannish creations well over a month ago? I still have them! And a couple more! I swear I keep meaning to post them.
On the plus side, I've made some good progress on my dS Seekrit Santa. Need to get moving though, still, because I have a vague schedule plotted out for working on it and I don't want to fall behind.
Something at work is stressing me the holy fuck out this week. Car rental companies are PURE EVIL. GAH. Am trying not to think about it and remain positive that it's going to work out...
Need to watch this week's H5-0 and Glee still... getting to it. Distracted by Fringe. Last week's Glee was epic awesomness and made me very happy for the first time in awhile. Once I'm done Fringe, time to get caught up on other things. Still need to finish True Blood (am halfway through season 4), and Castle (am at the start of season 3). And then... gotta find something else! Might try to catch up on Ringer, because I hear it's gotten quite good. I've only seen the first 1.5 episodes, and enjoyed them well enough, but got distracted.
Um. What else? I need to post Halloween photos! Halloween this year was amazing and awesome; best I've had in a long time. Party at Fontana's was fun as always, and most important was Thrill the World the next day! So great. We had 434 zombies dancing Thriller at the Roundhouse in Yaletown. :) It was a heck of an experience. Can't wait for next year! Plus I dressed up as Starbuck this year (and zombie!Starbuck for TTW), which was just plain fun.
I never posted about Hawaii either, did I? Jesus, that was over a month ago. It was great - jedinic
and her friend and I had an awesome time. Short trip, and I got sick partway through, but still lots of fun! And warm! It's freezing in Vancouver now (I realize that 'freezing' in Vancouver is a relative term, but... it's a wet cold? ^^ Whatever, when it gets near 0 degrees here I just want to wrap myself in a blanket and never come out. And it was pouring today...). I want warmth again! And palm trees!
...Fringe 4.01 is still inching along and is at 16%. Boo. Tomorrow it is.
Also I've gotten hooked on a silly iPhone game called DragonVale. It's like Farmville (which I never played) but with dragons. You build a dragon themepark and raise dragons to attract more visits! It's pointless yet oddly compelling. I'm naming all my dragons after Harry Potter characters (the fire dragons are all Weasleys, heh). And was then disappointed when, having named by starting (Plant) dragon Harry, and later naming my Cold dragon Draco (it seemed to fit), I discovered that Cold and Plant dragons can't breed. Well, that's just unfortunate. ;) I bred the canon couples, anyway, and Harry/Hermione. Will breeding more ridiculous couples shortly. Need a Snape dragon... just gotta decide what type he is. Maybe Cold as well?
Yeah, I'm making up for lack of posting by making one big post that's basically about nothing. Sorry? I will strive to update more regularly in the future!
OH! And I don't think I posted about it yet (probably not), but I've registered for both Pacificon/bitchinparty
! Woo! Haven't figured out my plans for the latter at all (general thoughts that I want to do some travelling back east while I'm in Toronto so I can see some of the places in Ontario/Quebec that my company sells, because I've only been to Montreal/Quebec/Ottawa once and that was 10 years ago. Otoh, that also sounds kinda dull because I'll likely be alone. And the company probably won't pay for me since we just sent some employees on a fam to the same places, and it's really just a personal trip anyway. Still, if I'm flying all the way out to Toronto, I figure I ought to do SOMETHING other than go to the convention. Sometimes I really wish I could drive...)
...I should go to bed. Or maybe I'll use this newly rediscovered urge to post to actually post some fannish content. We'll see. ;)
